A female plane passenger has sparked controversy online with her carry-on luggage hack, which involves masquerading multiple bags as one.
TikToker Kyle Mark shared a clip of the woman’s sneaky trick online, applauding her as his hero and calling her a fiscally responsible queen.
The clip received 2.2 million views, but not everyone was impressed with the woman’s strategy.
Some users criticized her for taking up too much overhead space and being rude, while others were concerned about the plane being overweight or not receiving enough fuel to travel.
Other users chimed in with their own travel hacks, including stuffing an empty pillowcase with clothes and cosplaying as pregnant with clothes stuffed under a shirt.
One user even advised travelers to ship their belongings to their destination rather than check them aboard the plane, claiming it was cheaper.
Another TikToker shared her budget-friendly hack of wearing all her clothes in layers, despite the discomfort.
While some users commended the woman for finding loopholes to avoid baggage fees, others criticized her for being inconsiderate to other passengers and potentially causing issues for the airline.
Despite the mixed reactions, the video has sparked a conversation about creative ways to save money and avoid baggage fees while traveling.
